VISUALCONTAINER TV is glad to present on SpecialOne Format the anthological selection of video works of PIER GIORGIO DE PINTO.

The videos focus on different fields and frameworks, from experimental research to performances and collaboration with other artists.


About Pier Giorgio De Pinto

Pier Giorgio De Pinto is a trans-disciplinary artist, a performer, a curator, a theorist and a media trainer. He strongly uses new media as a “thinking media”, in which he involves the audience by creating performative experiences and immersive environments. His projects are usually made with other author's collaborations – musicians, choreographers and artists – coming from different cultural backgrounds and experiences, styles and identity genres. These collaborations enable De Pinto to undertake new and radical experimental projects, in order to stimulate a deep discussion about stereotypes and prejudices, and to ask awkward questions in the framework of culture, politics and religion.
